Noticias Agricolas 12(13): 97-103



Intensive rice cultivation practices in the Calabozo area of Venezuela are described. A yield of 5.47 t per ha is achieved using aerial application of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. Direct production costs doubled between 1988/89 and 1989/90, whilst yields rose 41% and price per t rose 16%. Overall, gross receipts per Bolivar invested fell by 3.4%. The quantity of rice which must be produced to cover production costs rose 82% to 2.6 t per ha.
